About this Program

Normandale&�s Community Health Worker and Navigator program will prepare students for a variety of entry level healthcare employment opportunities, including the role of the Navigator for the Health Insurance Exchanges. Community Health Workers (CHWs) and patient navigators work to increase cultural competence, improve access to healthcare for racial and ethnic minorities, improve the quality of care for chronically ill people, promote healthy communities, and educate clients and others about access to and use of healthcare resources. As a community health worker/patient navigator, you will play a critical role in bridging the gap between the community and the health care, government and social service systems.
